You know what your one person show is. You’ve got an outline, the title, the poster (even if it’s just in your head). Now you just want the actual script! This workshop is designed for writing, writing, writing.
Specific writing exercises will give you the key points of your show: the introduction, how to take us into your world, the forwards, the climax, the transformation, the ending…and you’re gold! Not for the faint of heart – in this kickass weekend of writing, you will work hard and forge your story with love, pressure, and truth.
This class is beneficial for those who have already taken the One Person Show Workshop 1, but those with outside experience or a working script can also apply to join the class. If you haven’t taken the first workshop, submit a resume and a description of your project to request a spot in the Part 2 workshop.

“When I first saw the posting for Anne Marie’s One Person Show Workshop, it was like looking at a harmless little switch on the wall. ‘Hmm, what’s the worst that could happen if I flipped this switch…?’ Ten billion volts of creativity later, there was no worst, only best. I now have the bones of a one-woman show that will one day make delicious, comical sense of this writer’s life—and be fun along the way. Anne Marie has a way of seeing right through our fake and filtered pleasant selves to THE STORY!!! She did this for me, who thought there was no story. I watched her do the same for everyone else in the room and learned through the watching, too. Anne Marie, you are Magic. Truly.”
